Abstract

The changing landscape of medical practice, the explosion of medical knowledge, and the introduction of new technologies and teaching methods have impelled a re-examination of the various roles of the medical educator. This chapter examines each of those roles -- content expert, competency expert, role model, teacher of critical thinking, promoter of life-long learning, patient educator -- from both a historical and modern perspective. The overall requirements for faculty development are described and, for each of the educator's roles, specific faculty development suggestions are put forth to meet the evolving needs of modern medical educators.
